Most will agree; do the crime - do the time. Do you believe that NOT providing heat in jail is appropiate punishment? Did you know that SSRJ refuses to use disinfectants to clean with? And if I'm not mistaken Emporia has a high HIV population if that sort of information was made available. How about no hot meals for the inmates? One would think that even though inmates and or their families pay for everything provided in SSRJ the jail would have enough money to replace burnt out light bulbs? But No such luxery for these criminals!

I was born in raised in Emporia, VA, and this is very true and it is a shame that we have so many jails and prisons in such a small area. Interstate 95 & 58 is the gateway they have amp up the number of police and troopers and if you ride thru be careful cause they love to stop out of town visitors and guest. The HIV issue is a major problem and with the city and the people covering it up will not help...

Yes, it is true about SSRJ, they voliate prisoners rights, some of the guards aren't worth anything they kiss but to the administration and the guards that do their job get poor evaluations. The food is worse than dog food and no they don't use lysol at all and they fell that's okay. For the guards that Administration demotes for no good reason they need to be reported to the labor board. The people in administration only push papers and have no experience in working in a jail or prison. they need to go work in maximum security prisons or either on death row. SSRJ NEEDS TO BE SHUT DOWN!!!!!!

Not sure why there aren't more posts up here. People are being held in lockdown with only 15 minutes out of the cell every other day. What's worse is it's done after the phones are turned off and they can't even call family members. This is absolutely inhumane. Something needs to be done at this facility and soon!

My family member has served time in SouthSide Regional and has spoken of the malicious and grotesque way that the women in the facility are treated . My family member has called me several times complaining of how she was treated like a dog and not a human being. How she was belittled and how the women's dorm was placed on lock down and only the women in the facility . The men were not placed on lock down and the women could not come out of their cells for no more than 4 hours a day. This is suppose to a jail that takes their facility serious, but also treat the inmates like humans and not like animals. After all, it is a jail.. Which entails they are serving a short time frame , not a prison sentence . I would like to know why this jail treats the women inmates with such disrespect.

This jail is bullshit. They have women on lockdown for 20hrs a day for non violent crimes. Women are treated like shit. The guards arent worth a damn. The food is dog food. I had a rock in my food one day. Problems and complaints never get resolved. This jail should be shut down.

Yes it is very true about the way that they treat females in this jail. I have been there and I know. All females are taken to max security straight from booking. I was told this is because of PREA bullshit... and I was told it is because the men now occupy the women's dorm. I'm not sure what is true. As far as cleaning supplies go... they are brought but the guards mix them and you have no clue what's in the bottles. The food is the worst complaint and the way that men are treated with more respect and given more privileges. It is by far the worst jail I've ever witnessed. Something needs to be done and report this place.
